A NEW type of performance is set to come to Cumbernauld next month, in a show at Cumbernauld Theatre that will be sure to delight anybody – not least because there’ll be £10,000 in £ coins laid bare before the audience.

Cumbernauld Theatre has opened bookings for ‘MONEY: the game show’, a performance with a twist. 

“Risk takers to the front, risk averse to the back.  Welcome to MONEY the game show,” Claire Duffy writes on the Cumbernauld Theatre website.

“Casino and Queenie used to be hedge fund managers.  Before the financial crisis of 2008, that is.  Now, in an inspired - or desperate - career move, they’ve turned to performance art to share their stories of how to make (and lose) billions from economic downturn.

“Playing with £10,000 in real pound coins, you are invited to bet long, short and hedge, as Casino and Queenie challenge you to play a series of high stake games that demonstrate how the world’s economic system came to the brink of collapse.

“MONEY the game show takes a playful and politically sharp look at the roots of the 2008 financial crisis and its ongoing impact in 2013, as well as tackling the bigger questions: What is money? What is it really worth?  And what happens if we stop believing in it?”

The performance duo will be performing at Cumbernauld Theatre on June 7, with Cumbernauld Theatre now taking bookings for a show which the Guardian once described as being a, “…playful, thoughtful and riotously entertaining piece…”

The performance will kick off at 7:45pm on June 7th, with tickets priced at £12, or, £8 for seniors, and £6 for students, people under 18, and £6 for unwaged audience members. 

Tickets can be booked via the Cumbernauld Theatre website or by telephoning the box office on 01236 732 887.
